Who Are We?

Phi Kappa Theta is a national social fraternity founded on the ideals we believe shape college-aged male-presenting students into well-rounded gentlemen and model citizens.

Across all 41 Chapters of Phi Kappa Theta across the nation, “Phi Kaps”, as they are referred to colloquially, are known for being the next generation of servant leaders and have been at the forefront of social justice and equitable accountability within the Greek Community and every collegiate community that Phi Kaps call home. Our MA Zeta Chapter at Bridgewater State University is no exception.

Phi Kappa Theta is currently the only fraternity in the American Fraternal system that is considered a true “merger” of two separate Greek organizations. This is due to the nature of a Phi Kap being so strongly based on social equity. Nationally, Phi Kappa Theta was established on April 29, 1959, with the merger of Phi Kappa and Theta Kappa Phi. Both organizations were founded by a group of students at Brown and Lehigh University (respectively) who were refused entrance to other fraternities because of their faith. Similarly, the MA Zeta Chapter of Phi Kappa Theta was founded on the Bridgewater State Campus in 2011 when a brother was rejected by a prominent Greek Organization for being Transgender. Although rich in Catholic history, Phi Kappa Theta is open for membership regardless of one's faith.

Phi Kappa Theta works relentlessly to foster the development of one's intrapersonal relationship to the values and ideals we uphold as an organization for each brother. With a history of an overwhelming portion of male-presenting student leaders on the Bridgewater State University Campus hailing from Phi Kappa Theta. Those who reflect our values and interact with "Phi Kaps" regularly can attest to the impact that each brother has made within the community during their undergraduate program.

Member Benefits

Phi Kappa Theta provides a constant emphasis on the importance of reflection and self-evaluation, developing deliberate programming that intentional factors in one's plans for long-term growth, and promoting healthy communication and relationship building within the brotherhood it exists to serve. Bettering the organization one member at a time.

The key to our success is achieved through two critical aspects. A quality-based mentality regarding the recruitment of those welcomed into the brotherhood, and creating an experience that seeks to develop each member through the opportunity to personalize their experience to whatever they allow themselves to gain. Creating a myriad of opportunities that allows for brothers to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses and crafting an experience that only seeks to develop growth.
